Melissa’s history with Sondheim began when he selected her to star as Dot in Sunday In The Park With George at The Kennedy Center Sondheim Celebration. She went on to perform many tribute concerts for Sondheim at such venues as Avery Fisher Music Hall, Symphony Space, and The Natural History Museum. Errico was honored to costar as Clara opposite Judy Kuhn in Passion at Classic Stage Company, and critics called Errico’s Drama Desk-nominated performance, “Sublime; I’ve never seen or heard a better Clara,” (The Wall Street Journal). In the 2016 Encores! season, Melissa tackled one of Sondheim’s most controversial and conflicted heroines when she shone as Leona in Do I Hear A Waltz?. For this, it was said that “Errico delivers an emotionally complex and haunting performance” (The Hollywood Reporter) and her interpretation was called “exquisite” (The New York Times).
